Shipping Help

I need suggestions as to how to ship a NAS roof rack cross country. Anyone done this before and how did you do it. Approx cost? Need ideas quick before I leave on vacation.

Thanks,

Joe

We use R&L carriers at work. Put it on a pallet and they'll come get it, pretty reasonable. Also, FedEx does freight now too.

Forward air. I shipped my old roof rack to NH and it only cost me $75. However, they did bend the ladders which i had to pay someone to fix it. Build a crate, much safer that way.

Did any of these carriers come pick the package up. This is necessary as well.

Thanks for all the options.

Joe

I just recently used UPS Supply chain Solutions (http://www.ups-scs.com/) from Virgina to Northern California (took about 7 business days). They picked up from the residence in VA and shipped directly to my office. The cost was $297 (residence to business) aprroximately 200 lbs. It would have been cheaper if it was business to business. Anyway, Clay put all the stuff in the rack tied them down with zip ties and then wrapped the whole rack with a heavy duty 'seran-wrap' type palstic that you can get from a Uhaul.

FYI
FedEx Freight was over $300

Forward Air. They don't pick up, but I shipped a complete rollbar for about $70.

If it is anywhere near me I would be happy to pick it up and deliver it to a carrier for you. I get a good rate since I ship out storage boxes regularly. Just let me know!

BTW - Dave - I still owe you for that one buddy!

Unfortunately, it is in Central Mass.

Thanks for the offer though.
